Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to carry out a psychological evaluation for the parents of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and parents of children without ADHD as control to detect any psychological problems in those of children with ADHD . These problems may be a precipitating factor to cause ADHD in their child or have a genetic predisposition to be passed to their children. On the other hand these psychological problems may be caused by the difficulties they encounter in raising their ADHD child. The exact relation needs more researches and to be more investigated.
